AFAIK a feature like this is legat for road cars in Germany and Austria, but not anywhere else in Europe. I guess that a corporation the size of Volkswagen will get this changed easily.

The only problem I can see with this car is price. The trick drivetrain and carbonfibre construction don't come cheap...
